The kernel/world are completely seperate from ports. Updating kernel/world won't update ports, and vice-versa. Building the "world" only builds the base operating system. Anything you install from ports is 3rd party and not part of the base operating system.

So yes, you do have to use some other method to manage your ports installations. I'd recommend portmaster as it's a simple shell script, nothing fancy that requires a heavy depend. like ruby (*cough* portupgrade *cough*).
I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!
